Helping Communities Become Bike Friendly

Ride Illinois provides technical and strategic help on bike-friendly infrastructure, education campaigns, national Bicycle Friendly Community designation, and more. Since 2001, we have worked as consultants for more than 20 towns and other government agencies. We have also provided limited pro bono assistance to dozens of Illinois municipalities.

As a non-profit with experienced staff who are passionate about making Illinois better for biking, we strive to keep our services affordable without compromising the high quality of our work. Our relationships with the myriad agencies and organizations that affect cycling conditions throughout Illinois also makes us an effective partner in the planning process. We have extensive experience in on- and off-road bikeways, comprehensive municipal bike planning, successful plan implementation, bicycle access to transit, successful grant and funding strategies, education programs, and more. Our strong member base also brings local knowledge and energy so critical to developing relevant plans and pushing them forward.
